If There's One Skirt to Wear for Absolutely Any Occasion, It's This One

If you’re one of these people who are dedicated to a seasonal wardrobe switch (or you just do it for the space), you’ll know that some items are always destined to hop in and out of vacuum bags. Cosy cashmere jumpers, for example, will be packed away as spring/summer approaches, and linen shirts will be ready to emerge. But some pieces will always stay on the rail. And the humble midi skirt is one of these few versatile love-all-year styles that can be layered or stripped back depending on the season.

With Y2K trends—including bandeau tops, wide-leg jeans and double denim—making a resurgence this year, it’s no surprise mini and maxi skirts are also appearing once again. But when it comes to skirts that are universally flattering, it’s always all about the midi. Whether you opt for faux leather from Nanushka, indigo denim from Rejina Pyo or silky material from & Other Stories, H&M and Monki, there’s no doubt there's an iteration to suit you. And you can rest assured knowing there are multiple styling opportunities to be had for any upcoming occasion. Here's some inspiration that's made us want to wear ours immediately, along with 21 styles to shop. 

Ways to Wear Midi Skirts

Tonal outfits will see you through any season. Opt for soft, creamy colours top to toe, and stay away from coffee.

Janka (aka the queen of colour) knows how to liven up a classic midi skirt. Power shoulders are also going to be big news this year. 

If your midi is verging on being a maxi, then this is okay, too. Both are key for spring, so team your ankle-brushing style with a statement white blouse and sandals when spring/summer swings by.
